Kyrie Irving on clutch Jayson Tatum: "Some people have it and some people don't. It's just as simple as that. I think he's pretty much shown that he can play, as people say, with the big boys at the end of the game. Without wavering in terms of his decision-making or anything like that, he trusts what we have going on and he knows where his opportunities will be, especially down the stretch."

Jeff Hornacek on the absence of Tim Hardaway Jr., who will be out until at least Dec. 19 due to a stress injury in his leg. "I think it hits us a little bit. Tim gives us another guy who can run the lane with speed and athleticism. You see a lot of times we throw the ball ahead, he gets an easy bucket. They have to honor him on the 3-point line so we have to spread out a little bit more. We don't quite have that when he's not out there. The other guys can step up maybe with shooting but other guys have to create that for them. Tim is one of the few guys on our team that can really create his own shot. So yeah we miss him, but that can't really be an excuse."
